    Weather's OK here (I'm about 50 miles away from the Oval), but I predict a batting collapse in the first hour. Then it's all down to how Warney's Wallabies bat

    I hope you are wrong Matt. Love to see at least 375-380 runs in the first innings.

    Unlikely - down to our tail-ender partnership with 346 - expect the final wicket to fall at any moment...
